Certificate in Youth Ministry

This program is designed as an option for those who cannot study in an on-campus context, but are motivated to prepare for effective service in the local church. For those who are working with a youth group and need “just in time skills,” you can put them into practice right away and earn a solid one year of fully transferable credits into our four year degree program (on-line or on-campus)

Graduates of this program would find themselves well equipped to manage volunteer or part time youth ministry opportunities.
